Drew Robinson serves as CBF's Digital Advocacy and Outreach Manager. When not assembling action alerts, sending e-mails to members, or writing "This Week in the Watershed," he enjoys getting out in the field telling stories of Bay savers in action.
Hailing from the Garden State, he attained his love for the environment on frequent camping trips on the way to earning his Eagle Scout. After graduating from Dickinson College, Drew taught English on the small island of Pohnpei, Micronesia and led a multi-state campaign organizing young Evangelicals towards greater awareness and activism addressing environmental stewardship and climate change.
In his free time Drew loves reading history books and playing and watching sports, particularly the New York Yankees and Rutgers football. His favorite spot on the Bay is the mouth of the Magothy River, which he visits frequently on evening strolls with his wife, Heather, son, Nathaniel, and energetic dog, Sparky.
